Hello Mr. H, that's a mighty beautiful bar you got there. Mighty beautiful .
Would you be willing to field a few questions about the simulated bamboo bar edge you built? Could you share some details about how it was created? It's just amazing how cool it looks.

It appears to be two layers of wood (upper and lower) that were sandwiched for thickness. Is that correct?

What did you do to introduce the curve on it? (wood?...curve, curve? wood)
Was it simply cut out of a large piece of wood as a curve or did you bend it somehow?

What was the painting/finishing process? Did you use a glaze as well?

Thanks very much for any tips you can pass along.
You do great work.



Hey Mr. PPP, sorry for the delayed reply but here's some answers for you. It's actually 3 layers of wood that wrap the edge of the bar -top and bottom. The bar top is 1.5" thick so for the middle piece I used a 2x12 (which is really only 1.5"thick). The top and bottom layers are only 3/4 " thick. I laid the 2x12 across the top of the bar edge and transferred the curve of the bar top to the bottom of the 2x12 with a pencil then with a compass set to 2", I drew another line following the line transferred from the bar top to give me a 2" wide x 1.5" thick curved area to cut out. Basically repeated the process with the 3/4" wood but using the 2x1.5 cutout and cut the 3/4" pieces 3" wide to provide a 1" overlap on the top and bottom of the bar edge. Hope this makes sense, starting to sound jumbly to me. Also the 2x12 didn't cover the entire length of the bar so there is actually a joint in the faux bamboo edging about 3/4 down the length of the bar. I rounded the edgeing over with a belt sander to give it the rounded shape. The only bending I did was the banding above and below the real bamboo on the face/base of the bar. Those are just a 2x6 (top) and a 2x8 (at floor) that I cut saw kerfs into about 3/4 through the boards and about an inch apart to make them flexible.

The faux paint job --hmmm. I don't remember exactly how I did it but I didn't use a glaze. In one of the pics of the bar during construction you can see that I painted it a pale yellow. I either went over that with a wood stain or some thinned down brown paint to give it that antiqued amber color. For the nodes, I just painted 2 thin lines about an eighth of an inch apart with burnt umber acrylic paint and took my thumb and smudged the lines outward away from each other to give it the torched node look. I then hit the whole thing with several layers of marine grade polyurethane. Hope this helps! Here's a cross section photo of the end of the bar where the top flips over for back bar access. The green is the 2x12 and the red is the 3/4" material:



While I'm here, a photographer friend from Knoxville, TN, Scott Kirkham, was down a few weeks ago and took some great shots:

BUMP! Whatchoo workin on Brad?



Hey Cizur Nek,
Well I haven't been working on much in the tiki genre lately although I still have a big Ku I started carving last year and have yet to finish along with my surfboard/tiki painting I still need to fix. Slacker! I have, however been dabbling around in the backyard some working on 'The Jungalero Lagoon'. Want to make a clamshell waterfall or a waterfall with at least one clamshell embedded in it. We'll see.....
Not tiki yet but it's part of the grand plan of the Jungalero Lounge, Gardens and Lagoon.

C'mon to Oasis!

Its been a while since Ive looked at your pics... and the details of the whole thing are really amazing.

The curved bar.. the walls.. the floor....

Its just an incredible place and your skillset really shows in all of it.

Hi Brad, thanks so much for explaining your process. Your bar has been one of my biggest inspirations on Tiki Central. It's just incredible looking.
I'm also trying to decide whether or not to use tile or paint on my floors and sure admire what you did with yours. Is that just painted concrete? Did you add 'texture'? It looks as though there is actual 'relief' to the faux rocks but I'm guessing that it's painted on in 2D? (and extremely well:)
Thanks again!
John

Amazing job with the place! Everything a Tiki room should be! I love that fish tank diorama. Did you make the rock thing inside it? I also like the bamboo grid roof, oh and the faux bamboo bar edge... and the floor, well, its all amazing! The combo of matting, tapa, and bamboo should be put into some equation for others to follow!

Thnx everyone for the comps! It's been a labor of love and still is --will probably never be be finished because I will just keep adding more stuff to it. Someone once told me that the secret to eternal life is having unfinished projects --I can't die because I have too much to do still!

Kinny --I'm not making Hukilau this year either, nor Oasis so you just need to come hang on the right coast for a few days and I'll put you and miss T up for a few days anytime.

Thnx for the comps Monkeyman, I could really use some of your frames and lamps here--they're the best and I couldn't do a better job myself. We'll have to talk.

Queen K! I can only dream that my place will one day look like yours --you've got the best skilled peeps taking care of you --your place rocks in a BIG way to me!!!!!

Tikiville --my pond is only a few days old, don't even have the filter hooked up yet and it already looks like shit, maybe because I don't have the filter hooked up yet...getting there. Have plenty of leaves, etc., that I need to take care of.

Mr. Pupu --it's a concrete slab floor that I taped off 'grout lines' with a roll of duct tape that I split in half to be about an 1" wide then painted the floor with some garage floor paint (impervious to anything, supposedly). I used a mix of black and dark green then got some grey garage floor paint and used the edge of a piece of sheet metal to make the lighter colored marbley relief look you see on the floor. Many 'how to' paint tips on youtube.

Mucho thanx, Tiki Tony. You're an amazing artist yourself. I'll have to have one of your pieces in the bar one day for sure! I found the Moai head online at some aquarium website. I also have a few pieces in the aquarium that I got from ebay--I have a 'saved search' for vintage aquarium ornaments ---cool stuff! Thanx!

There he is... back again!

Good to hear from you Brad!

Its been a while!

Glad to see you're keeping busy, and the backyard looks tops!

I remember last year when it was a jungle of banana trees and plants... the lagoon is an excellent addition!

Have fun with it all!
